Structural Mass Elements (MASS21) Input Listing: vm48.dat Test Case
A small generator of mass m is driven off a main engine through a solid steel shaft of diameter d. If the polar
moment of inertia of the generator rotor is J, determine the natural frequency f in torsion. Assume that the engine
is large compared to the rotor so that the engine end of the shaft may be assumed to be fixed. Neglect the mass
of the shaft also. Figure 48.1 Motor-Generator Problem Sketch Material Properties

One rotational master degree of freedom is selected at the mass. The wall thickness of the pipe is defined as half
the diameter to obtain a solid cross-section. Results Comparison
